Term 1 School Holiday Training Sessions 2014

I am running two new session during Term 1 school holidays. Capture
TITLE 1: Teaching Computing; How to move beyond the norm

Are you looking for something new to teach during computing or do you simply not know what to teach? If so, this session is for you, no prior knowledge or computing skills required! We will explore ideas for teaching coding/programming with a focus on designing, producing and evaluating products. You will have the opportunity to work with various technologies and online web tools. There will also be discussion times and resources for teachers which you can take back to your class. Most resources have been designed using higher order thinking tools. The social implications of technologies will also be addressed and resources are linked to the Draft Australian Curriculum Technologies. This session is recommended for Year 2-Year 6 teachers.

Date/Time: April 22, 2014 , 9:30-3:30 (6 hours of training)
Location: Campbelltown Library, SA
Cost: $220 pp (incl. GST) morning  tea and lunch will be provided
What to bring: A lap top if you have one as some flash web tools do not work on iPad. If you have an iPad bring that too, I even have some coding apps to share.

    1. Thanks Jane,
      Will do. You will receive a personal confirmation to your email shortly. This session is innovative, I have located some great resources, created my own original ideas and linked many to the Draft Australian Curriculum. I am really looking forward to sharing insights about the implications of coding/robotics and society and how we can address these with our students. In addition, Zac will be there giving a student’s perspective.
